"These enrolments and award of PhD degrees are in contravention of the UGC (Minimum Standards and Procedure for Awards of MPhil/PhD degree) Regulation, 2009," he said.

Khasi Students Union President Daniel Khyriem said "an independent judicial enquiry should be immediately put in place against the management of the CJM University."
